the theme of this panel, what you recommend in the future as far as how the u.s. should be interacting with those countries, another afghanistan scenario and also the possibility, hopefully we won't be intervening any time soon directly, however, what i am curious about is if that's intervention does not happen, what would be the ideal scenario given the other actors in the region and how they are influencing that? >> the sad reality is this is one of those situations where there is no ideal scenario or even a good scenario. that is what i was alluding to when i opened my comments by saying there are situations where there is no good solution. i would commend, some of you may have read a piece by my friend and colleague in the washington post in which he makes the point that the world and especially the middle east is an awfully messy place, in many ways in which the united states can't be expected, no u.s. president could be expected to solve and resolve everything. the blood shed in syria makes all of us shudder. that doesn't mean there is a u.s. policy option that will bring it to a

administration of course we seem has been criticized for its handling of the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in libya. this attack resulted in the death of ambassador chris stevens but we also now know that he made multiple attempts to get more security and that these efforts went unheeded. do you believe that the obama administration mishandled the situation even after and also in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? hochul: absolutely mishandled, and to learn how that their cries for help from people asking for additional support, and to know they were unanswered is unacceptable. estimate of the house armed service committee when we get back to washington will conduct oversight hearings and make sure that our ambassadors and all the consulate personnel across this globe are protected. we've got to make sure they have within me. i would not do as republican leadership in congress, cut $300 million from embassy security. we need to make sure they have the resources, the protection they need. i do believe there's any explanatio
such as american national standards institute, the solutions of information design, to advise u.s. army training and doctrine on credentialing to evaluate the programs being provided by these men and women still wear the uniform. we all need to recognize the top quality education and training, men and women of the united states armed forces receive when they are serving our country. we are working with the united states chamber of commerce,, and recruit military llc, from big cities to small towns, from convention centers to american legion posts. if you're not into one of these events, i strongly encourage you to do so. there he will see firsthand the quality of these returning servicemen and women, employers who understand their value, and legionnaires who are dedicated to improving their lives. the men and women who fought for this country should have to fight for a job when they return home. veterans, their families and american legion will keep working to revive our nation's economy. efforts to improve opportunities through licensing and credentialing, for job fairs and busines
in at this time. i think we suffer from a major confusion that you can help us sort out. in the u.s. they're returning following the advice. and we have in the independent banking commission a halfway house. and it should go the whole way. this is a completely wrong characterization that i think of what you're saying, you're saying they can't a wide rapg of functions that can be alongside the payment system. then there are another type of transactions that shouldn't be there at all. they should go off right to a separate institution. and in terms of scope you allow a larger scope to remain in. in terms of separation, when it happens, it happens in a much more radical way than being proposed here. woef we have to muddle twine between the two. in the noncommercial banking part of the organization you can list all the functions. but the heart of the functions there are trading this a broader sense. whether it's customer trading or pure speculation. this is between the customer relationship and impersonal relationship. that let it and left special trading outside the organization. >> i will s

[laughter] so you have to stabilize that. and you have to figure out a way to get the economy to grow. and that's a long-term proposition which will lead to more jobs. but you're right, there's some contradictions in all of this. but in trying to create more jobs, you can't mess up with the overall problem of the trustworthiness and creditworthiness. you're shaking your head. we'll talk afterwards. next. >> hi. over the course of your career, you've had the most incredible access to all these, um, great politicians in history and even today, and i was just wondering out of everyone you've met, who surprised you t

dangerous day of the crisis. he didn't know there was a confrontation in the caribbean between the u.s. navy trying to bring up american soviet submarines that were armed with nuclear torpedoes. so there were all these things that the president didn't know. and similarly on the soviet side. kennedy, one of his great qualities, was that he had an instinctive knowledge of these things. he understood that things go wrong. and he derived that understanding from his experience in the military during world war ii. he liked to say the military always screws up. and that wasn't just an intellectual understanding. it was something that he had seen in the south pacific commanding a pt boat. it was that feeling that events are getting out of control that both he and khrushchev shared and that's what led them to bring the crisis to the end after the aharrowing events of black saturday. >> i would like to go to brian. in a previous life before he became an author and started teaching at the university of miami, was the cuban analyst for the cia and spent a great deal of his life thinking about what castr
